    How many pulls to hoist the chute? Can it be done from the rail?

    Lake Oroville Dam - Stand Back

    I wasn't very clear. I don't think it's the mass. From what I recall on a 50,000 sf pour I watched years ago, cracking is most often a result of not quite the right amount of water (too much, I think) in the mix and/or too fast a cure. Easier said than done. Watching the QAs get it right across multiple truckloads was interesting to watch. Every truck load got a slump test before it was allowed to unload. The QAs rejected a few every day, much to the anger of the truck drivers and provider. And then there was someone spraying down the pads daily for a week or two while it cured. We still got tiny cracks. And then the Corps had the contractor back out a month or so later to hammer out one pad with a test sample that failed a compression test. I think you're right about the foundation but it needs to be bomb-proof. The compacted clay the last spillway was built on played a significant role in the its failure.

    That's hilarious and something I wouldn't have considered. Bound to be a solution out there...

    Likely the distinction is the difference between those engineers in the real world versus an academic engineer. Never expect cracks? Really? In pours that size? In high summer?

    MILF seeks second date via radio call-in.

    Hilarious, yes, but I feel sorry for the woman. While I'm guessing the worse thing she could reasonably expect was rejection, events did not conform to her preconceived assumptions. And unlike so many folks who are unceremoniously dumped, at least now she knows.

    Great story. RIP to an amazing man from my childhood. I remember the shock of hearing that baritone coming out of Gomer's mouth for the first time.

    What's your position?

    For science! At least it's not a hackable butt plug.

    FIFY. Fun? I wonder at what point the French Revolution became the Reign of Terror? Gotta admit it, though. I'm enjoying all the masks being ripped off, whether infotainers or politicians.

    I'm in the same boat. Neighbor introduced me to the foundation of his PC-based system. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008YD80KC/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=I316ZCH83ISZ46&colid=2GGTNGN1WXNXT&psc=0 I'm leaning strongly toward Power Over Ethernet IR cameras, a mix of 1080P and 4K. Haven't decided on the size of the PoE switch yet.

    Try this to see what you need. https://www.antennaweb.org/ I put a Clearstream 2V UHF/VHF in my attic several years ago. No regrets.
